From the Inside Flap

Sexy Christians. Oxymoron? Or words that redefine the way we live?

If you think the words sexy and Christians don't belong in the same sentence, think again. God wants your marriage to be filled with joyful, sexy intimacy. In fact, sex was his idea to begin with. If you feel as though something's missing from your relationship, don't give up! Having to work at marriage simply shows you're one real person married to another.

In Sexy Christians you will learn why men and women see sex differently, what the greatest aphrodisiac is, and how to avoid the most lethal killer to a great sex life. You'll also discover what men's and women's sexual needs are and why they are so different, what sex is all about from God's perspective, and what the differences are between male and female sexual response cycles.

If you want the kind of passionate relationship for which God made you, Sexy Christians is the place to start.

Ready for the next level? Check out the Sexy Christians Workbook, designed for individuals, couples, and groups. Packed with additional content, this companion study challenges you to explore the rewarding work of intimacy.

My husband and I read this book over a period of three months. It was full of great wisdom and gave us deep conversation and transformation. Parts of this book offered new insight and others was great confirmation of what we have already experienced or learnt for ourselves.
We are going to present this to our church and we hope to offer it to other married couples.

HASH(0xa59de600) out of 5 stars I Think this Book IS for Single People Too.. May 12 2010
By Kim K - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
As a single woman I feel I need to add my comments here. I purchased this book thinking that it would be good information to store somewhere in the back of my mind until such a time as I was married. I have to say that I have seen a few different comments saying this book isn't for single people and I disagree. This book for me has been incredible. I think that it offers a very "real" perspective on expectations when you are married. Not only sexual ones but just the reality of living, breathing and basically co-existing with another real person. I realize that there are areas in my life that I need to work on now with God before I ever have to face them with another person.

As I was telling my friend about how this book was helping me be more prepared in so many ways for a future marriage, she told me that in our society today people spend more time preparing for a job interview than they do for marriage. That is just crazy. There is a part in this book where Pastor Ted says that it is important to know what you need to know before you fall in love because once the hormones kick in reasoning goes out the window and is replaced by emotional reaction. And maybe I can't list the page number or the section where I read that, but what is important to me is that my head and my heart remember it. While some people think that this book is too much about Ted and Diane, I want to say that that is what is making it so special for me. I can read a text book all day long and not retain half of what I need to, but give me a book that uses real life people and examples and Godly ones at that and it is much easier for me to retain. Examples like theirs don't only give you a blueprint but they give you the tools to apply what you are learning.

I'm not saying that what I am reading doesn't sound really hard but it gives me more of the tools that I need when choosing who I want to spend the rest of my life with. I feel like I am even more aware of some of the things I need to do in my life before God brings me the person who will challenge me and help shape my character into the woman God has called me to be. Though this book is not promoted or even suggested for singles, I recommend it to everyone of them. Why not do everything we can to be prepared. Thank you Ted and Diane for such a wonderful gift.

HASH(0xa61dcc54) out of 5 stars Creating True Intimacy May 12 2010
By Pastor Chris - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Don't let the title of this book fool you regarding its purpose or discourage you from reading it! Ted and Diane Roberts have hit the ball out of the park with their new book, Sexy Christians: The Purpose, Power, and Passion of Biblical Intimacy.

Ted and Diane, formerly senior pastors of East Hill Foursquare Church in Gresham, Ore., are the founders of Pure Desire Ministries. The stated goal of this ministry is to bring healing to "men and women who have become addicted to sexual behaviors harmful to their social, family and spiritual wellbeing."

Pure Desire works with local churches in this regard, and Ted and Diane are frequent conference speakers, including their own Sexy Christian Conferences. To say the couple has a firm understanding of marital and sexual issues would be an understatement, considering their almost 30 years of church ministry.

Written to Christians in a sex-saturated society, Sexy Christians explains that the path to a fantastic sex life is not achieved by focusing on sex but by developing a deep intimacy between husband and wife. Ted and Diane take time to dispel marital myths, explain why men and women are so different, give men and women tips on how to develop emotional intimacy, and show how intimacy with Christ flows over into one's intimacy with his or her spouse. The book is written in easy-to-read language and gives practical exercises for couples to use at home.

Pastors, this book will help to encourage not only your own marriage, but also those in your congregation. You will want to keep copies of this book on hand to give to couples in premarital counseling, as well as those in established marriages who need a tune up. I highly recommend this book as a resource to you and your congregation.

HASH(0xa7765564) out of 5 stars Best "Self Help" book I've Ever Read July 17 2012
By Kandikayla - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Relationships now days are very complicated, especially with worldly views on them.
This book is the best "Self help" book on relationships that I've ever read. The book goes in very good depth over the book Song of Songs in the Bible. It puts Song of Songs into a completely different perspective. Not only that, but, it answers a lot of questions when it comes to relationships. Before I read Sexy Christians, I was looking for answers to my relationship questions from other "self help" books, my Lifegroup, family, and other loved ones. I bought it because the title grabs you, and makes you wonder what in the world is this about. So I started reading it out of curiousity, and each chapter sucked me in even more. I could not put it down, it teaches a lot of helpful information about how the mind and body works in men and women and the needs of each. It also teaches how to reach true intimacy with your partner. I strongly recommend this book to everyone, whether you're married, single, Christian, or not. Sexy Christians will answer most, if not all your questions. Hope you love the book as much as I did.

HASH(0xa5d037e0) out of 5 stars A decent Christian marriage book, a disappointing Christian sex book... March 20 2015
By Chad Oberholtzer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I've read a few dozen marriage books over the past 20 years, including some of my all-time favorite books and also several absolute stinkers. But a specific category of books that I haven't read much are those about intimacy, which is Christian code for sex. There are scores of Christian sex books on the market, and I've mostly just skimmed a few that were ultimately cheesy and unhelpful. But as a pastor who counsels and marries other couples and as a husband who wants to love my wife well, I figured it was time to take the plunge. And what I encountered with Ted and Diane Roberts' "Sexy Christians" turned out to be moderately helpful but ultimately disappointing.

What the Roberts team does best is offer a thorough theological grid through which to view human sexuality, as created and intended by God. They use Scripture, academic research, and personal experience to broadly describe what sex was intended to do and how it is intended to function best. They are honest in admitting some of the common struggles and disappointments that many Christians encounter in their sex lives. Yet they are hopeful in passionately describing what we can experience through sexual expression in marriage. I found all of this analysis to be thoughtful and helpful and logical and biblically faithful.

However, there are two primary critiques that I would offer to explain my overall disappointment with the book. First, the good stuff that I describe above was not especially unique from what I've read in countless other general marriage books. Frankly, they were just describing a host of principles and ideas that are essential for healthy marriages but aren't really directly tied to the sexual experience. It was all well and good but not especially new or profound, even if it was couched in newish "Sexy Christian" vocabulary.

And that leads to my second and primary disappointment of the book, that a book entitled, "Sexy Christians," wasn't very much about sex. Yes, they referred to sex on every page, but most of what they talked about were broader themes like communication or marital expectations or anger or past wounds. I've read about this stuff before. I wanted a book specifically about sex. And this one didn't deliver.

It's like a parenting book I read recently that began by saying that Christians can't be good parents without a strong marriage. What followed was a significant portion of the book about marriage. But I didn't want to read a marriage book. I wanted to read a parenting book. In this case, the Roberts seemingly started by saying that Christians can't have a great sex life without having a strong relationship with God or a generally healthy marriage, so they wrote a book about how to have a strong relationship with God and a generally healthy marriage. That's all well and good, but I wanted to read a book specifically about sex!!

In summary, for those who haven't read anything about Christian marriage, "Sexy Christians" is a fine place to start, with some good thoughts, helpful principles, and necessary candor (though I'd recommend Gary Thomas' "Sacred Marriage" as the very best of the general Christian marriage books). But if you're looking for something to really help inform your understanding of human sexuality from a Christian framework in any sort of focused, nitty gritty way, I just don't think this is the one.

HASH(0xa53f4cd8) out of 5 stars Curious what The Bible had to say about sex in marriage. Sept. 6 2012
By Shawpaws - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
All my questions were answered about the Bible's teaching of sex in marriage. I now understand more of where my husband comes from and see his side of things. In return, I found out more about myself as well. I wanted to be more open minded and that is just what I got :) loved this book!!!!
